- From Keith Schneider:  On behalf of the HS, I'd like to thank Nathan and Katie Gerlach for their work in bringing the UW Band to campus on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2019.  The event went off without a hitch and the comments from the crowd were very positive.  The Nathan and Katie teamed with the Music Boosters, Administration and Maintenance staff to make this special day happen.  CHS had four alumni in the UW Band that day:  Nick Fry, Bailey Whiting, Rachel Day and Emma Hanisko.  We thank our alumni for returning to CHS and performing before a "home crowd."  Thanks and On Wisconsin!

- From Senora Fleener: The AP Spanish Language and Culture students went to see a special exhibit at the Latino Arts Inc Museum which featured famous Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. We had the opportunity to learn about their personal lives and their lives as professional artists. This class is currently reading the book Frida by Kristy Placido and fits well with our art unit we do in the advanced level classes. Click here for the link to the actual exhibit itself. A perfect day for all and again... many thanks to Keith Schneider for helping teachers make memories like these for our students.

-  From Lori Hughes:  Thank you to all the volunteers that attended the competition with the team, to the families that donated food, and to the students for their patience and flexibility. We are so proud of your accomplishments! Congratulations to the NMS Science Olympiad team for their 7th place overall out of 27 teams.

- Alicia Siebers:   A few weeks ago one of our 8th grade girl’s basketball athletes suffered a knee cap dislocation during our game at Palmyra-Eagle.  It happened in an unintentional collision with another athlete and unfortunately, her injury resulted in having to be transported by ambulance to the emergency room.The student’s parents, and I were all very grateful for the staff at Palmyra for acting so quickly when the injury happened.  So many of the coaches, game supervisors, & parents of Palmyra athletes approached Mr. Lacke after the game and asked how student was doing. Today I received a letter in the mail and inside was a handwritten card for our student from the 8th grade girl’s basketball team at Palmyra-Eagle.  What an awesome gesture of sportsmanship!!
